Roll with the punches

Yard sales don’t exist in wintry New England. During these weeks of snow and ice, we rely on internet postings. This season I even joined a local Facebook yard sale group to get me through winter.  I just read a booked entry that was like a punch in the face. 

“Pristine oak roll top desk”

“Like new”

With the reasonably low price, I was interested enough to open the internet ad. 

Additional information about the posting brought home a dose of false advertising: 

“Missing roll top”

I guess I have to accept the realities of virtual yard sales for a few more weeks. After that, I’ll Spring into action.
